I suppose you're talking about collapsing / expanding forums...
I don't thing that this is what this mod does....
My mods in MODDB:
Add Homepage link in header - Change user activity post limit - Post number in viewtopic
If you need support click on the support tab there and post your question.
Do not PM me - chances of viewing my PMs are way thinner than viewing the support question in the customization DB...

Hi,

No, this stores the data in the database for each user and hence as well as categories, it also allows you to choose not to display individual forums and subforums :)

Sounds very useful.

Does it affect the display for each user on the Active Topics page (e.g. http://www.phpbb.com/community/search.p ... ive_topics) and View New/Your Posts?

No, it only affects places that use the display_forums() function i.e. index.php and viewforum.php.

Thanks for the quick reply. :D

Would it be fairly easy for someone experienced in phpbb developing (not me) to modify your hack so that it worked on the active topics pages as well? Nice that selected forums can disappear from the forum index page and subforums from the view forum pages but some users prefer to browse via the active topics pages etc.

Also, if a new forum was added to the forum index by admin would it appear on everyone's forum index display until users chose to hide it?

Not at the moment, but I'll look into having the option to hide certain forums from active topic pages and/or searches for a future version :)

Yes.

Great mod...I think. :D

On my test board all I get is: "You cannot choose to not display this forum" for every category. What simple, stupid thing have I missed?

You have to set the permission for each forum to allow registered users (or whomever you like) to hide the forum.
